Leaving or entering? I had a problem with leaving the nether. I dropped my stuff, killed myself, then went back to pick up items, and that worked for me.
Most of us know that and have done it many times. The point is, I shouldn't have to suicide or worse, hard-reset my Xbox and damage the HDD by playing the game how its meant to be played. This sort of thing should have been included in the "bug fix update" which also included save freezing.

Start -> Exit -> Exit without saving
Are you daft? Do you even know what we're talking about here?
The Nether freeze LOCKS UP the system itself when entering or exiting a Nether Portal. There is no "press start, exit, exit without saving". The Xbox completely freezes... no Minecraft menu, no Xbox menu. This also happened with the Save & Exit freeze which has apparently been fixed, and which just about everyone here knew how to avoid after the first time they were stricken with it.
This isn't a troubleshooting thread so before anyone starts trying to offer opinions, I have a Slim 360 purchased in February which replaced an older model. The Nether freeze is a well-known glitch and I thought it was going to be fixed with this patch. I guess I was wrong... if anyone else experiences this post-patch, please let us know.
